"These that have turned the world (system) upside-down are come hither also ... and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another King, one Jesus." (Acts 17:5-8)

Christ’s royal regiment is employed here on earth to bring His Father Glory
We as citizens represent His Government
We enforce His laws and precepts and
Spread our Government’s message (Kingdom)

In the Book of Acts Paul and Silas were establishing Ecclesias
They were not establishing churches as we know it today
They were setting up Christian civil governments which
Represented the Government from which they were sent
This was normal during the time of Jesus and
It was also common in the time of Paul
This is one reason why they got into trouble because
Their Government stated that there is only One King and
His Name is the Lord Jesus Christ

Paul and Silas did not set up churches; they set up ecclesias
One aspect of the Kingdom of God was to set up ecclesias and not churches
By doing this they would not constrict men and would not control men as the Romans did
God displayed a similar pattern when He chose Moses to free the Israelites from Pharaoh
He Himself wanted to lead them and be their God
It was in this context that God did Great Things and
Today he is still doing Great things on this planet

Christ’s royal regiment is employed here on earth to bring His Father Glory
We as citizens represent His Government (Kingdom)
We enforce His laws and precepts and
Spread our Government’s message (Kingdom)
One aspect of the Kingdom message is that
The Father gave His Only Begotten Son to recover us so
That we once again could be part of His Government
This is precious; we must be reminded that satan will
Never ever get a second chance to be part of God’s Government
No wonder he hates us so much and more important he
Hates the message of the Kingdom
Because he knows the Word of God’s Government

Paul and Silas did not set up churches; they set up ecclesia’s
One aspect of the Kingdom of God was to set up ecclesias and not churches

Let us do the same

Ecclesias— Christian civil government communities assembled to live by God's laws for liberty!!
